Chief Administrator Officer – Building Officials Association of BC

The Building Officials’ Association of B.C. (BOABC) has over 700 members who primarily represent local government Building and Plumbing Officials and those involved in building design, construction, testing and research.

BOABC has grown since 1954 from 24 members situated largely in the Greater Vancouver area to seven geographic zones across British Columbia and the Yukon Territory. BOABC fulfills much the same objectives as originally proposed; consistent Code interpretation; a forum for discussion; education, standards of Code knowledge and since 1981, a technical certification program for our membership.

In addition to leading BOABC’s regular business operations, the Chief Administrator Officer will manage significant change in the transition to the BOABC’s new role as the administrative authority responsible for qualifying members under British Columbia’s new Building Act.  With direction from BOABC’s Executive Committee, the Chief Administrator Officer will assist members with training, certification and qualification, and work in partnership with the Provincial Government according to the terms of the Administrative Agreement to promote building officials’ competency.  He/She will represent the BOABC when promoting the building official profession through strategic partnerships and alliances, and will support the members’ interests in meeting the new qualification requirements.

Under the Building Act Administrative Regulation, the BOABC is delegated responsibility for the administration of building officials, the register, and monetary penalties.  At the Minister’s discretion, the Province may designate the BOABC’s Chief Administrator Officer as the registrar of qualified building officials under the Building Act, subject to suitability.
